The UN General Assembly (UNGA) overwhelmingly approved a resolution on Wednesday October 12, telling Russia its annexation of four Ukrainian zones is illegal and not valid.


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called the resolution “historic” in a tweet and thanked the states that voted in favor.

During the assembly’s emergency special session on Ukraine, 35 countries including China abstained from voting while 5 countries Nicaragua, North Korea, Syria, Russia and Belarus voted against the resolution. 143 nations voted in support of the motion, a resounding victory for Ukraine, the US and its allies.
